A very, very pregnant Gwen Stefani has been out and about with her son Kingston this week who looked super cool in jeans and a hat (he's holding it by this point!). Gwen knows the slimming power of black so wore it head to toe but added an enormous colour boost with her L.A.M.B ombre tote. It is quite hard to track down L.A.M.B in the UK but US stores such as Shopbop.com and Nordstrom will ship to the UK (be careful of the tax). An ombre shopper is available for $495 (about £251) or the Newcastle tote (pictured here) is available for $695 (roughly £353).

This week's episode was surely the most emotional yet with plenty of tears as the prize is just about insight. Arguments raged between Rachael and Alex, with Rachael complaining that she has to work so hard but Alex is just naturally beautiful so gets away with doing very little. The end of the episode saw them all being rewarded with a trip to South Africa, but do you think they deserved it?

The rumour mill has been working over time for the Beckhams this week. Today, it has been implied that Victoria Beckham will show a collection at September's New York Fashion Week. Not content with ruling the denim and sunglasses world, it seems that Ms Beckham wants to get her fingers in another pie, dresses. She told WWD at the launch of her Prestige fragrance, "I'm working on a collection of dresses at the moment, which I plan to show in September."
The official schedule does not include her yet but we'll be sure to tell you when it is confirmed. She added, "It will be something completely different from what I've ever done. I'm just putting it together at the moment, but they will be very upscale dresses and likely will start at around $1,200 retail. I'm going to be using very expensive fabrics and finishes, lots of embroideries."
I think it would be great for Victoria to show. With the likes of Gwen Stefani and Lauren Conrad already producing catwalk lines I see no reason why Victoria wouldn't follow suit. New York fashion week runs from 5th - 12th September.
Gwen and Her Little King Enjoy the Sun Blooming heck! Gwen Stefani was showing how close she is to her due date as she led Kingston and her friendly buggy-pusher around London yesterday. She's still looking more stylish than I do on a regular day in her late stages of pregnancy, wearing some gorgeous sunnies and a long black dress – style being something that has already rubbed off on Kingston, who's becoming something of an icon for the younger set!
Spring menswear fashion week is in full swing in Milan with shows by Versace and Dolce & Gabbana already having taken place. Allegra Versace has already attended several shows. Earlier in the week she showed off her vamp lips at her Mother's Versace show and last night she attended the Tom Ford boutique opening. Alongside the likes of Miuccia Prada, Anna Wintour and Margherita Missoni (wow, imagine trying to dress for that party!) Allegra partied in this ensemble.
The dress has the potential to look a bit like a sack and wash her out. However, she included a great pair of heels which not simply added height (thus losing the 'sack' risk) but also added a glamorous shot of colour. What do you think of her look?
Kate Moss was in cold water yesterday over the possibility that she upstaged Leah Wood on her wedding day. However, she apolgised by paying for a second honeymoon for the couple! La Moss was out and about in London yesterday showing off her famous pins and doing a spot of self-promotion in a piece from her Topshop collection. I'm not sure about the ankle boots, I think this look would be better with gladiator sandals. See below for a way to copy her style.
The current financial climate is unsteady to say the least. Words and phrases such as 'recession' and 'credit crunch' are thrown around as readily as 'boho' might have been three years ago. Baring this in mind, right now seems like an odd time to launch a new high fashion magazine.
However, plans were revealed this week for the launch of 'Distill', a high fashion bi-monthly title which will reproduce the best content from fashion and style magazines across the globe.

Buying key designer pieces and then bulking up your wardrobe with High Street bargains is all very well if you can afford the designer pieces in the first place. Well, with sale season in full swing it seems that might be cheaper/easier than you think.
This week sees the start of the Net a Porter sale with reduced pieces from the likes of Alexander McQueen, Marc Jacobs, Burberry Prorsum and Oscar de la Renta to name but a few.
